Strangeloop designs, builds, installs, and supports hardware and software solutions that accelerate the performance of websites and web-based applications.
Founded in 2006, Strangeloop’s original product offering was the Strangeloop AS1000, a delivery-focused accelerator for ASP.NET. In 2010, the company launched Site Optimizer, a next-generation solution that offers a powerful set of features that work together to provide roundtrip reduction, rapid rendering, and dynamic browser caching. Site Optimizer makes Strangeloop’s web acceleration capabilities available to companies in different environments: as a hardware appliance, as a virtual appliance, and as a service via the cloud.
Companies like Petco, Travelocity, Visa, Sodexo, and O’Reilly Media have implemented the Strangeloop Site Optimizer on their websites and increased sales by 13%, increased organic search results by 10%, and received ROI within weeks.
